Stan continues to take money from the bank and kids Hilda that he's on a winning streak with his betting. Rita is thrilled with her new car. Ken and Deirdre ask Billy to invite Percy back into the Rovers. He refuses to listen to them and tells them that they can take their custom elsewhere. Mavis complains that there's too much chutney in the Rovers' sandwiches. Billy is annoyed and bars her from the pub as well. Rita tells Mavis she'll pay for her flat to be decorated if she'll take driving lessons. Mavis agrees. Hilda receives a bank statement and discovers Stan has withdrawn £40. She accuses Stan of stealing the money but he is adamant that it was his money. She tries to make him see they'll need the money to live on soon. Billy tries to make up with Deirdre but she refuses to speak to him. Alf stands by Deirdre and bars him from the shop.
